  • Not creating a child theme would stop IE from delivering the content, maybe some JavaScript or bad coding.

    The theme creators say “While the theme looks good on IE we advise against it especially in the admin section of Mantra (the Mantra Settings)”.

    On a first look (check your home page source), you kinda blew it when you’ve added the CSS style before the <!DOCTYPE html > .
    A possible IE problem could be from your “facebook like widget” you added on your first page as modal. Try deactivating that and see if IE shows your website a bit better.

    This, however, it doesn’t look like a WP problem, more like a Mantra Theme problem (css & js).

    i tried to deactivate facebook like plugin but it doesn’t solve the problem

    * Theme Name: Mantra Child
    * Template: mantra
    * Theme URI: http://www.riotreactions.com/mantra
    * Copyright (c) 2011-2012 Cryout Creations
    * http://www.cryoutcreations.com

    @import url(“../mantra/style.css”);

    span a.first {
    background: url(images/sprites-buttons.gif) no-repeat 0 -303px;
    color: #fdfdfb;
    display: inline-block;
    font-family: ‘CarterOneRegular’;
    font-size: 16px;
    height: 38px;
    line-height: 37px;
    margin-left: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    text-decoration: none;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 #216b20;
    width: 136px;
    font-size: 16px;

    here is my css file good

    The major problem is likely the mark-up (HTML) errors on your page:


    As mentioned above, having any code above the DOCTYPE causes major problems — other errors may be problematic as well.

    thanks WPYogi for the help just now i see my source code using chrome and find out I add style code before header in my child theme template

    now it is working fine Maha Kumbh Festival
    thanks again for the help: Yogi- A mystic person

    I implemented this theme few days back but never thought it will not work on IE as I am using chrome and mozilla

    IE is really bed understanding how to parse html page.
    Follow all rules

    Glad you sorted it. Yes, IE is notoriously problematic — though recent versions are WAY, WAY better than older ones. Perhaps someday it will actually conform to standards and stop driving all of us crazy?!

    we hope that Microsoft will know this fact I don’t use IE today just a thought come to my mind for using it and It gave a shock.

    problem solved
